They said it

“They take the losses personal. I’m proud of them for that. They continue to fight to the very end, and they’re showing a lot of character. It hurts them, and that’s the way it should be.” -- Tahlequah head coach Brad Gilbert following the Tigers’ 45-28 loss to Sallisaw.

Games of the week

- Locust Grove at Sequoyah: District 3A-7 appears to be wide open right now. Hilldale may be the frontrunner, but Sequoyah and Locust Grove could be vying for playoff spots.

- Tahlequah at Grove: District 5A-4 appears to extremely weak this year, so winning this week may go a long way to one of these teams sneaking into the playoffs.

- Union at Owasso: Both are 1-2 but still likely the favorites in District 6A-1.

- Lawton MacArthur at Del City: Aside from Ardmore, these are likely playing for the district crown this week.

- Catoosa at Wagoner: Catoosa upset Fort Gibson last week. A massive upset this week could temporarily derail Wagoner’s district title hopes.
